Is My Doctor Responsible?

AJB Stevens have identified, and continue to investigate the possibility of claims against various surgeons who failed to obtain informed consent from their patients in accordance with acceptable medical standards. By bringing individual actions rather than class actions, claims can be brought not only against the regulator or the manufacturer, but also against each doctor who did not perform to the standard that would be expected by other peer professionals.

How much does it cost to make a mesh implant compensation claim?

At AJB Stevens, we understand that many Australians may not seek legal help for mesh implant compensation cases as they believe the cost to be too much. This is why we always stand by our No Win No Fee claim. This means that if we don’t win your compensation case you don’t pay our legal fees.

This policy backs our claim that we believe every Australian deserves the right to legal representation when they need it most, regardless of financial situation.
